Aquarium

We’re delighted to welcome back rising star Sam Leak with his magnificent quartet.

‘This is assured and sophisticated acoustic jazz with deep roots in the tradition, that knows exactly what it is trying to do – and succeeds.’ Daniel Spicer, BBC Music Magazine

Aquarium is led by pianist and composer Sam Leak, described by Jazz FM as ‘one of the brightest young stars in the jazz piano galaxy, a heavenly improviser and a brilliant prospect for the future.’

Their two albums have received a glowing reception from the UK press (‘Multi-faceted and smart as a pin, this is poetic chamber jazz of a very high order’ MOJO Magazine). Jamie Cullum is a ‘fan’ of the band, and in 2012 their eponymous debut album was listed as one of the year’s top 10 international releases (MOJO).

‘way beyond respectful expertise’ John Fordham, The Guardian
